Minneapolis, MN, /24-7PressRelease/ -- As the world's fastest growing fitness franchise that is consistently opening 300 to 400 new clubs each year, Snap Fitness has just announced a move to a larger corporate headquarters to allow for its growing system of franchise owners and the "bulking up" of its corporate staff.
Located at 2411 Galpin Court, Suite 110, in Chanhassen, the new Snap Fitness HQ features larger training facilities for franchise owners who attend "Snap University," the comprehensive training program. The larger accommodations for Snap University means an increased number of owners can attend each session; therefore, providing owners the opportunity to open their doors faster, equipped with the knowledge they need to open and operate their franchise.
In addition, the new facility features a fully-operating Snap Fitness club that is open to the general public. Snap Fitness Founder and CEO Peter Taunton believes an on-site club will allow the corporate staff to stay closely in-tune to the needs of franchise owners and members alike.
"Our emphasis at Snap Fitness has always been on best-in-class systems, processes and support to franchise owners and members," said Taunton. "This new state-of-the-art facility is another example of how Snap Fitness places franchise owner support and satisfaction as a top priority, in addition to providing all our members with the best workout experience possible."
Launched in 2003, Snap Fitness has raised the bar in the fitness industry for providing the same quality equipment as the traditional "big box" health clubs, but without the crowded parking lots, long waiting lines, and inflated monthly dues.
Snap Fitness currently has more than 1,680 locations under development worldwide and projects to have more than 2,000 locations under development by the end of 2008. Snap Fitness is currently seeking single and multi-unit franchise owners to open new fitness centers in strategic markets throughout the country.
Fresh off its #3 ranking on Entrepreneur Magazine's list of Top New Franchises and recently ranked #1 on Franchise Market's Top 100 New Franchises, Snap Fitness (snapfitness.com) is experiencing phenomenal growth with more than 1,600 locations sold nationwide, newly-opened locations in Canada and some 30-40 new stores added monthly. Founded in 2003 by CEO Peter Taunton, the Chanhassen, Minn.-based franchisor offers compact, state-of-the-art, 24/7 express fitness clubs that emphasize fast, convenient and affordable workouts in neighborhoods across America.
